Marlin and Family;
It is hard to lose your Mom. My Mom was special to me as I am sure Pauline was to
you. Some days you will remember and almost taste the meal she cooked that was
your favorite. Or maybe you will remember a certain smile she gave you when you
made her proud. It will be hard, but the verse below has helped me. I hope it will help
you fill SOME of the void you are now feeling. Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my
fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the
horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I am praying you will find comfort and peace knowing you will see Pauline again in a
